Black and white photography can deliver images with levels of beauty and impact that are sometimes lost or diluted by the presence of colour. This practical book is written for readers with a passion for monochrome photography, who wish to use digital photography to match and exceed the level of control and finish that was possible with film. With visual examples throughout, it systematically teaches skills that underpin photographic creativity, from capture to digital development, before considering a range of outputs and finishes. Contents include: photographic equipment, camera settings, exposure parameters and file composition (bit depth, colour space resolution); editing software, notably the key features of Lightroom and Photoshop dedicated to black and white photography; using HDR techniques to maximise tonal information while recreating Ansel Adam's analogue Zone System approach using digital technologies; simulating traditional darkroom techniques by emulating the appearance and characteristics of popular films, toning techniques, adding edges, borders and dodging and burning; outputting monochrome photographs for publication online, social media, screen, projection and high quality archival prints suited to exhibitions. This book will help the reader understand the principles of digital black and white photography to create powerful images with the quality of traditional darkroom practices, and is aimed at all photographers - particularly artistic. Fully illustrated with 291 images - many are black & white with a few colour to demonstrate the loss of impact that colour can have.

Digital Photography and Everyday Life: Empirical studies on material visual practices explores the role that digital photography plays within everyday life. With contributors from ten different countries and backgrounds in a range of academic disciplines - including anthropology, media studies and visual culture - this collection takes a uniquely broad perspective on photography by situating the image-making process in wider discussions on the materiality and visuality of photographic practices and explores these through empirical case studies. By focusing on material visual practices, the book presents a comprehensive overview of some of the main challenges digital photography is bringing to everyday life. It explores how the digitization of photography has a wide-reaching impact on the use of the medium, as well as on the kinds of images that can be produced and the ways in which camera technology is developed. The exploration goes beyond mere images to think about cameras, mediations and technologies as key elements in the development of visual digital cultures. Digital Photography and Everyday Life will be of great interest to students and scholars of Photography, Contemporary Art, Visual Culture and Media Studies, as well as those studying Communication, Cultural Anthropology, and Science and Technology Studies.

" "Computerization movement" (CM) refers to a special kind of social and technological movement that promotes the adoption of computing within organizations and society. ... Through theoretical analyses, systematic empirical studies, field-based studies, and case studies of specific technologies, the book shows CMs to be driven by Utopian visions of technology that become part of the "ether" within society. The empirical studies presented here show the need for designers, users, and the media to be aware that CM rhetoric can propose grand visions that never become part of a reality and reinforce the need for critical and scholarly review of promising new technologies."--Back cover.
